Asana mobile - editing task description causes bottom subtask to be overwritten

On Asana mobile, when I edit a task description, it causes the subtask at the bottom to have its description overwritten with the task description.

  1. Open Asana app on mobile
  2. Open a task with several subtasks.
  3. Edit the task description
  4. Open the last subtask within the task.
  5. The subtask description has been overwritten with the new task description.

Browser version: Asana mobile app

What version of Asana are you using? Basic

Upload screenshots below:

As a workaround for this overwriting bug, I have been looking at the edit history and copy/pasting the subtasks’s previous description to recover it.

Unfortunately, I cannot recover the subtask description for the following because I edited its parent task description on the same day that the subtask was created. Thus, the edit history does not show the subtask’s original description.
